My first thought was '....yeah, I bet that sucker costs a bit..' The answer is: Nope. It is a bit south of $300. That is both a nice price point and a lot of capability.
I still remember trying to trouble shoot a 8048 which was having a bit of problem handling a serial RS-232 port (using software decoding, of course) Oh, yeah, I was using a 454 scope (not storage!). Sat in a darkened room, running the bad routine time after time as I tried to figure out where I had goofed up (after 3 days, I found my error - a quick change in the code and the problem was fixed and I was a bit smarter). Anyways what I wouldn't have given for something like the Logic 16.
Now if I could get a 4 channel analog scope with all the goodies (e.g. storage and deep storage, etc). Wait, I probably can! Oh, my, the world moves on.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
